I don’t know if I’m subconsciously missing my long hair from 6-7 years ago, but as I watched the Oscars this year (on Monday morning, thanks to the PVR), I was enthralled by all the Veronica Lake inspired do’s. The deep parted, side swept, brushed out curls were incredibly beautiful this year. I think it’s a beautiful option for a wedding, grad, or simply a nice dinner out!
My personal favorite is Sandra Bullock’s – it’s perfectly coiffed, and her very subtle highlights shine through. Makeup wise, most have them have opted for a mostly nude face and TONNES of lashes, but Miranda Kerr’s poppy lips and coral cheeks are sassy and sexy, and Khloe Kardashian’s raisin lips give it a bit of drama and edge.
I’m also loving the look with big statement earrings that some of the ladies sported. Which one is your favorite?
Hey guys, I just joined Bloglovin! I didn’t know what the heck it was until a few days ago. Basically you use it to see the latest blog posts from your favourite bloggers from all different platforms in one easy go, as opposed to visiting each site to see if they have a new post yet. It’s super easy to sign up, just plug in an email and a password and you’re off and running! If you use it, follow me please :)
Anyway, it’s that time of month again when I get to talk about my skincare and makeup faves – yay!

In my last post, I mentioned that my tube of Missha BB cream has lasted me almost 2 years, and as much as I love it, I’m looking for the next greatest thing to replace it when (if ever) I finish it. Cue in the next amazing Korean foundation import: the Air Cushion foundation. Formulated with 30% mineral water, it promises moisturize the skin, which is insanely important to me. On top of that, it has an SPF 50, vitamins B5, P and E derivatives, and will not darken as you wear it throughout the day.
Are you nosy? I AM. I love perusing other blogs and checking out what other beauty junkies are using. It especially helps when I’m shopping for a new product. Don’t you want to know what works for other people? Granted it doesn’t mean it will work for you, but there’s a good chance!
Anyway, I have decided to jump on the bandwagon and post my beauty faves for January :D I know, it’s already February, but it was Chinese New Year, and there was too much going on…(but everyone who knows me knows that I’m always late, heh).
I have combo skin. Oily/dehydated. Lovely stuff. I know that it’s the lack of hydration that makes me oily, and this damn winter is NOT helping. Read more…
One of my favorite memories of Music History was studying late with my friends at my piano teacher’s house when thunder storms rolled in. We studied in the kitchen which overlooked rolling hills and endless sky, and when the storms came in, we would shut off the lights and watch the lightning flash across the sky.
The thunder storms are one of the things I miss about Houston as well. I thought Calgary had pretty wicked storms, but they pale in comparison to Houston’s torrential downpours. For our first storm, hubby and I rolled up the blinds and sat on our area rug with popsicles and watched the sky for 30-40 minutes. There wasn’t a single beat between the bolts of lightning – they just overlapped one another continuously. It’s amazing and terrifying at the same time.
To do this Lightning Bolt mani, this is what I armed myself with: Read more…
